Protecting Education Support Workers’ Terms and Conditions Post Brexit

Back to all Motions

Conference
2018 Local Government Service Group Conference
Date
23 February 2018
Decision
Carried

Along the 310 mile soft border on the island of Ireland a number of Northern Ireland schools attract pupils and workers from both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. In some circumstances the journey to and from their workplace is only a few miles.

UNISON members working in support services in these schools have NJC pay terms and conditions. They have become acutely aware of the fact that the majority of workers in Northern Ireland did not support the case for Brexit in the UK referendum.

Conference recognises the particular circumstances of these workers.

Conference calls on the service group rxecutive to ensure future negotiations with employers on pay terms and conditions will continue to be fully applicable to these workers.

Conference also calls on the service group executive to support UNISON Northern Ireland’s continuing efforts to ensure future unhindered access to their workplaces.
